I've been reading up on the latest legal gaffe from the UK, a guy was sentenced to three months in prison for making a sick joke about April Jones (the little girl who went missing). So I decided to research a little more and it turns out that this shit has been going on for quite a while. For example a dude was sentenced to 56 days for an allegedly racist tweet about a footballer who had a cardiac arrest on the pitch and this case dubbed the 'Twitter joke trial' where someone was told to pay a fine of £1000 for in jest tweeting 'blowing up' an airport after it'd been snowed in.

Maybe there's more, these were the ones I could find at the top of the page. What the hell is going on in the UK?



(though i guess i could post every pm going back to thatcher at least)

Yup, the reason I shouldn't run for office (though the idea has crossed my mind).

You'd get a position in President Camacho's cabinet, Funbags.

There really only is one position in a cabinet, Dogen. Just ask Boris Becker.

I don't know Boris Becker. I just like to change positions every once in a while to keep it interesting. But I won't argue with how the President wants to, er, stack his cabinet.

As long as he stores his red wines in a cabinet, and not a fridge. I don't really care if he stacks his Shiraz in with his Zinfandel or his Pinots. Or even his Chardonnay.

I think we're all clear on the necessity of a president who can tell his reds from his whites. Certainly, too, his stemware. Can you imagine if the president served a white wine from a Bordeaux glass? Heavens to Betsy. He'd look like one of the poors!

Even worse, imagine if he didn't know how to cleanse his pallet.

Four Loko doesn't even have caffeine in it anymore.

Someone should make a drink that contains high doses of nicotine.

Well they did use bulk nicotine as an insecticide, until about the 1980s when things that were somewhat less toxic to mammals came on the market.
